Imai Catalan Ship - 15th Century, B295

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

NOTE: builder kit only, not collectible. Please read carefully for the condition. Very large and well detailed model that measures 530mm x 300mm x 420mm. Full hull kit is molded in wood brown and includes cast metal anchors, all rigging material and furled sails (not billowing like the box art). This kit has never been started. The parts that were internally sealed at the factory are still in their factory sealed bags. The few that were not appear to be present. NOTE: this kit is missing the instructions, which means that while I think it is complete, I cannot confirm it. So the kit is sold 'AS-IS' only. If there were billowing sails, they are missing. Also, if there was a flag sheet, it is missing. There is no paperwork present.

Includes decals for Free French 'Nantes' GB II/20 North Africa and South African 24 Sq No 3 Wing North Africa. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Frog is considered the father of injection molded model kits. The Lines Brothers opened Frog in 1932, capitalizing on the fever caused by Lindberg's solo transatlantic flight. Almost overnight the western populations became 'Air-Minded', and anything aviation was in high demand. Frog created a quality line of stick and tissue rubber powered aircraft and gliders as well as innovative ready-to-fly rubber powered aircraft that required no assembly. The box even contained a built-in rubber motor winder and fuselage holder. Model airplane flight competitions were popular in Great Britain, and one category was 'Rise Off the Ground', or ROG. By changing this to 'Flies Right Off the Ground', the FROG name was born. In 1936 Frog created a line of injection molded plastic models, the first such kit line in the world (Hawk sold a line of injection molded aircraft models in 1934 but they were factory assembled and painted). Named 'Penguin' after the bird that does not fly, the kits were innovative beyond the means of production. At a time when models were simply built by wingspan, the Penguin line was a constant 1/72 scale. Furthermore, a large 1/72 Short S.30 Empire class flying boat contained a full interior and lights! A line of accessories such as AA guns, tractors, hanger, ambulance, sound locator, searchlights and lighting kits were quickly added to the line. WWII caused a pause in production. After the war the box color changed from silver to green, and Penguin kits were also marketed in the USA. Production ended in 1950. Frog quickly expanded and released the Red, Orange, Black, Green, Gold Token, Spin and Comet series as well as Trail Blazers and several others. It is noteworthy that while most manufacturers in the 1940s/50 were making toy-like models, Frog attempted to make very realistic models. For example, 'detailing' kits with excessively large rivets was once very popular. Frog ignored this trend and continued to mold aircraft with fine panel lines and no rivets. As a result, Frog kits can be built into very realistic replicas. Production ended in the late 1970s, but Frog molds are still in use around the world.
